Whitney Houston's funeral might only be intended for friends and family, but anyone with an Internet connection will be able to watch. Houston's publicist Kristen Foster says the ceremony will be broadcast live on livestream.com/aplive on Saturday. It will also be aired on some satellite services. Bobby Brown, Houston's ex-husband, has reportedly been asked to stay away from the funeral. Other reports, however, say he will not be turned away from the Saturday service at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, calling Houston “a daughter of New Jersey,” defended his decision to lower the state's flags to half-mast.
